The McHenry County Community Development Division earned national recognition for its work on Pearl Street Commons, a 25-unit development built in 2018 to cater to veterans in need and people with disabilities.
The department was honored during a Jan. 31 ceremony with a 2020 Audrey Nelson Community Development Award. Only five of these awards are given away each year by the National Community Development Association, a nonprofit representing local governments that administer economic development and affordable housing programs.
